Photo: Leaning Tower Of Pisa Architecture Dusk Tuscany Italy

From this angle you can clearly see how the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa received its name. The beautiful architecture of the tower is lit up at dusk in the Piazza del Duomo, also known as the Campo dei Miracoli, located in the city and province of Pisa.

The World Famous Leaning Tower of Pisa is an iconic site in the Tuscany, Italy which features exquisite architecture; everyone knows where it is and what it is called, mostly due to the fact that it is leaning over. Decades of work has gone into the tower to stabilize it and to prevent it from tumbling over completely. Finally in May 2008, after removing tons of soil from beneath the tower, engineers have declared that it is stable for the first time in its history.

The Tower as well as the nearby Duomo and Baptistery is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, meaning that it is protected as a site that is important to the history of humanity and cannot be destroyed for any reason. ... continue below the picture...

The tower stands in the Piazza del Duomo, known as the Campo dei Miracoli in Italian, along with a few other structures such as the Pisa Duomo. The Tower is the third oldest structure in the piazza.

The Tower was never meant to be leaning at all. It was started about 1173 and began to lean soon after construction began due to a really poor foundation that could not support the weight of the layers above. It has never been corrected completely and has never fallen over, although it is monitored all the time to make sure this doesn't happen. The Tower leans about 3.97 degrees over.
